I think the keys are more or less worn and you may have to purchase a new keyboard. One other thing you can do is to use a fine screwdriver and scrape away any dirt or debris that may be around the keys and use a can of compressed air to blow away the scraped of debris. If this does not work, the best alternative would be to buy a new keyboard. There are tons of cheap keyboards on the market and you can find some for under $20.

The A key keeps sticking on my Acer Aspire 5551- help!


If you mean the key is physically sticking, as in pressing down but not releasing,it is possible that the plastic spring or rubber stop under the key has broken.

You can remove the key cover and check if the plastic spring that the key attaches to is moveable and that the small rubber stop underneath is present. If the spring is broken, a replacement key can be got from ebay for a small cost. Check also that there is no dirt or sticky patches under the key, these should be removed using meths or a similar solvent.

If the key is not physically damaged, or there is no dirt etc underneath, there may be a problem with one of the traces on the ribbon cable to the motherboard, this will necessitate a new keyboard

My shift keys keep sticking down and move around like something is either broken under the key or, it just has something sticky down in it. My question is wich screws in the back do I unscrew to...


Hi!
Keys are designed to be removable from the front, you just have to be careful.
Get a flatheaded screwdriver and stick it under the shift key then gently (!) start pulling up. When you feel that it clicked out the lift it up gently and remove the small wire supporting it (note not all keyboards have it).
When you're done cleaning it just stick it back.
Good luck!

Keyboard lag


Sounds like you either have forward key sticking or you repeat rate in your keyboard settings is too high.

goto control panel -> classic view -> keyboard

First tab should be speed -> adjust repeat speed and try again. If that doesn't work then you have a key sticking and you keyboard may need to be cleaned or replaced.

The keys on my keyboard keep sticking. this is a


HI,

If the keyboard is so new that you can take it back with the receipt, you should do so. Some keyboards are just not made very well, or if normally a good product, you may simply have a defective one. No reason to keep it if you can return it. There is not an adequate way of fixing keys that stick. Usually that can be caused by spilling something like a sugary drink or coffee onto it, or if it has been exposed to direct sunlight for a long period of time, which could cause the plastic to warp.

Wireless keyboard keys sticking


on most keyboad you can take of each key. Try to get a flat head screw driver and pop it of with some force. You then can clean the keys. If this does not work you might need a new keyboard. Do not use water (or very little)
